With all thanks to the Nashville Scene, whose idea we are blatantly lifting (that’s called research in this town), and Mark Leibovich’s “This Town,” which provides the inspirational milieu, we present the Loop’s latest contest.

For the chance to win a coveted Loop T-shirt, simply finish the sentence “You are so ‘This Town’ if …” with an example of the kind of credential that immediately identifies one as a denizen of a certain class of Washingtonians.

You know them — or you are them — those inhabitants of green rooms, book parties and Tammy’s brunches (if you have to ask who that is, you aren’t among them).

Send your entries  to intheloop@washpost.com. Be sure to provide your name, profession, mailing address and T-shirt size (M, L or XL), in case you’re a winner. You must include a phone number to be eligible. Entries must be submitted by midnight, Aug. 20.

Be creative, be snarky, have fun — and just think how many compliments you’ll get on that Loop T-shirt around this town.
